Course:  Academic Earth and Space Science, Period 3-4 Group A

Course Schedule: Wednesday, 9:30-10:45

Office Hours: Friday, 10:00-noon

Essential Questions: 

  • What emerged in the first second after the Big Bang?
  • What are the important pieces of scientific evidence that support the Big Bang/expanding Universe Theory?
  •  In what significant ways did our Universe begin to change as the first generation of stars began to get old and die? 
  •  Why do stars shine?
  •  How do the conditions needed to produce atoms of the chemical element silver (Ag) differ from those needed to produce the element helium (He)?

Standards/PIs:  Science Graduation Standard #7- Obtaining, evaluating, and communicating scientific information: I can critically read scientific literature adapted for classroom use to determine the central ideas or conclusions and/or to obtain scientific and/or technical information to summarize complex evidence, concepts, processes, or information presented in a text by paraphrasing them in simpler but still accurate terms.
